General Board / Diagram simulation with prompts
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:33:29 am »
Hi,

I need to set up an example for a project that needs to generate result values based on the input value + rules on an activity (or state chart diagram).
I had a look at Sparx EA Example. I found that triggers & signals with attributes can be used to prompt users for inputs (e.g. in the Music Player > PlayList).
Oddly I cannot get this to work on a new State diagram.
I created a Trigger call Input1 with an associated signal Input1 that has a Name attribute.
In the statechart diagram, I created a transition to the first state with:
- effect = this.input1=this.Input1.Name
- Triggers = Input1 (Signal) -> an entry is visible in the list.

When running the interpreted simulation, EA doesn't stop nor prompt for anything. What seems to be missing?

Also, can I triggers on Activity Diagrams to prompt for values when running the simulation?

Thanks

Hi,

I have a project running a custom UML profile via an installed MDG where UML stereotyped elements are displayed with custom colours.
Is there a way in a script via EA API to retrieve the current default bgcolor value on a given stereotype?

Thanks

General Board / Package template - update existing elements
« on: January 05, 2018, 06:43:59 pm »
Package templates can be useful to alter the default colours for elements as illustrated here: http://www.umlchannel.com/en/enterprise-architect/item/211-mastering-archimate-alternate-colour-scheme-with-archimate-3.
It works for elements created after the Package Template has been defined.
Is there a way with EA or any available scripts out there to update existing elements default rendering?

Thanks

Hi,

I'd like to call a common function where the expected argument is the script ID (as per t_script.scriptid).
It doesn't seem to be possible to dynamically retrieve such information for the running script. Am I missing something or do we need a new Repository.GetCurrentScriptID method in the API?

Thanks

Suggestions and Requests / Diagram custom attribute order
« on: November 27, 2017, 07:48:54 pm »
Hi,

It would be useful to have a way to define a custom order of a class attributes that is specific to a diagram.
The order is currently specific to a class, however I have several diagrams on which I need to show attributes in a different order.

e.g.
Diagram A
Class1
====
attr1
attr2
attr3

Diagram B
Class1
====
attr1
attr3
attr2

General Board / UML communication diagrams and messages font
« on: November 24, 2017, 06:41:17 pm »
Hi,

A colleague has used UML communication diagrams and would like to increase the messages font size so it's more visible. I don't think this is possible ; any way round?

Thanks

Hi,

I like EA 13.5 new "navigation cells" to open a diagram as an alternative to hyperlinks.
Copying the diagram to the clipboard to use e.g. in Powerpoint has a glitch since the embedded images are rendered with a black background.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Scripts submenus
« on: October 10, 2017, 12:54:54 am »
Hi,

We use a number of package and diagram scripts for a project which we prefixed by type.
A right click on a package or diagram displays a big list which I'd like to reduce with an additional level

Is this supported in EA?

e.g.
Current list:
Type1_Script1
Type1_Script2
Type1_Script3
Type1_Script4
Type2_Script5
Type2_Script6
Type2_Script7
Type2_Script8
...

Needed list:
Type 1
Type 2

Select Type 1:
Script1
Script2
Script3
Script4

General Board / Settings location for the enabled MDGs and custom toolbar
« on: September 14, 2017, 12:29:31 am »
Hi,

I'm trying to identify when EA stores local custom data so a team can deploy a fully custom EA configuration throughout the team.
Perspectives and EA 13 ribbons are located in Sparx appdata folder.

I know some details are also located in the registry, however I'm trying to find the following:
- list of enabled/disabled MDG Technologies updated via CONFIGURE > Technology > Manage
- custom toolbars with added commands via START > Workspace > Preferences > Customize > Commands.

Thanks

Bugs and Issues / SysML prevents using UML use cases
« on: August 10, 2017, 09:08:59 pm »
Hi,

I use both SysML and UML on various EA projects.
Somehow I must have enabled an option in EA that I need to get rid of:
- in the toolbox view, the SysML Common is always visible (the common is collapsed)
- in a UML use case diagram, I always get the SysML Use Case toolbox!

Thanks

Hi,

It would be useful to display an element's title in a diagram vertically, or rotate an element by 90.
Being a possible future request, I wonder if this sounds feasible for Sparx in a future EA build.

Thanks

Suggestions and Requests / Intellisense in the DB Builder Queries
« on: June 14, 2017, 03:57:55 pm »
It would be very useful if the DB Builder could support intellisense on the current database when writing a query.
So if I use the Ctrl+Space keys, I could get suggestions on the table and column names based on the tables in the current DB project.

It works in the SQL Scratch pad in EA Model search for EA DB schema.

Bugs and Issues / EA13 copy/paste image using an Image Asset
« on: June 13, 2017, 06:09:37 pm »
Hi,

I started building an image library in my model with Image Assets. Very handy to organize the images via packages as an alternative to the built-in Image Manager.
When I create an Image from the toolbox, I can associate it with an existing image asset -> as an enhancement, I think we should be able to create this image by drag/dropping the image asset from the Project Browser and select e.g. Image in the drop down list.

When I copy elements from a diagram into another diagram, and paste all elements as new, the new image is not associated with the asset as expected ; could it be fixed?

Finally I noticed that I can no longer check the diagrams using an image asset (Find in all diagrams produces an empty result). This is possible in the Image Library with the View Usage.

Thanks

Suggestions and Requests / Custom package visibility
« on: June 09, 2017, 12:30:22 am »
I have a diagram with a couple of packages where I can see the classes they contain.
I would like to hide some classes similarly to the classes where I can hide selected attributes.

Feature & Compartment Visibility let me filter out classes based on the Public/Protected/Private visibility, but the Custom button does not let me choose elements to hide.
Note that I want to have several diagrams with different filtered lists of elements for the same packages.
Would it be feasible to implement this in a future build?

Hi,

I have a custom VB Script in EA that exports selected data in an Excel file within several tabs (e.g. classes, attributes, connectors...)
It uses SQL queries that work fine via the ODBC link to the DB. When using the Cloud Service, the script fails exporting some of the data.

I have yet to investigate into details what's going on, but I was wondering if anyone had experienced a similar issue. Does the Cloud Service introduce issues in such scenario?

Thanks
Guillaume
